Nnamdi Kanu might have relocated to the UK"- Femi Falana says

Humanrights lawyer, Femi Falana, says that the life of the leader of the now-outlawed secessionist group, IPOB, might be in danger following the recent clash members of his group had with military officers in Umuahia, Abia state. Falana also said that he might have relocated to the UK to join his family. In an interview with Punch, Falana said when Kanu was campaigning for the creation of Biafra, he never threw away his British passport.
"Mind you, the fellow and his wife and children are British citizens. He may have left the country to join his family in the United Kingdom. While campaigning for Biafra he never threw away his British passport. I hope he has not run away so that he does not jeopardize the liberty of his sureties. It is an irony that Kanu, who is leading the struggle for the Balkanization of Nigeria, has dual citizenship, while Mr. Shettima Yerima, who gave the notice to quit to Igbo people in the North lives in Lagos" he said.
When asked if Kanu's life might be in danger, Falana said 
"For sure. When armed soldiers invaded Odi in Bayelsa State or Zaki Biam in Benue State, they killed scores of people. Everybody’s life in Nigeria is in danger. Nigerians are shot dead in their homes by armed robbers or on the roads by soldiers or policemen or by armed herdsmen on their farms. So, it is a risky business to survive in Nigeria. Even President Muhammadu Buhari had to be flown to Britain for medical attention because his life was in danger here. So, nobody is safe in our country".

Graphic photos: Man on the run after beating pregnant estranged lover to death in Lagos

One Okiki Arisekola, a commercial bus driver has been declared wanted by the police for beating his estranged mother of his child to death in Lagos.

Late Islamat Bolaji, who was reportedly pregnant for another man was beaten to death by Arisekola, during a scuffle on September 16, at No. 50 Wright Street Adekunle, Yaba, Lagos, where the victim lived with her grandmother.

According to Saturday Sun, it was a quarrel between the couple over the custody of their 11-month-old daughter named Kemi that led to the victim’s death.

The suspect had reportedly been frequently visiting the baby and his mother, a development that aroused suspicion, due to the no love lost between the two lovers.

64-year-old grandmother of the deceased,  Mrs Gbemisola Agbola said she had lost Ismalat’s mother, Aishat at just exactly the same age. Losing the one she had doted on in consolation was understandably a cruel stab. 

The deceased’s father, Isiaka Bolaji, was also inconsolable. Islamat was his first daughter and was nursing a little child she already had with her killer.

“He has not been visiting my daughter, but recently he just started coming and my daughter grew suspicious of his visits," said Isiaka Bolaji 

"On the fateful day, when he came, they were together at first, then he left, on his return they started quarreling nobody paid them attention, because that was how they always fought. But, this time, it led to a physical fight and Okiki beat my daughter into a coma. After some minutes that he had left, my daughter fell and became motionless. We rushed her to the hospital and it was there she died,” Bolaji recalled of the incident.

Pointing to a spot on the floor, Mrs Agbola said:
“This is where I stood when I saw my granddaughter faint right before me just as her mother gave up the ghost,”

“She was just recovering from a fever attack. She had not done any work for close to a week. On that day, she decided to treat herself with some medication. She asked me to hold on to the child, an 11-month-old baby, I took the child and placed him on my lap. Not long after, Islamat’s sister, Kemi came in and asked me to give her the baby, I did and Kemi caressed the baby. She stepped out with her only to meet Okiki standing outside. He demanded to take the girl away and Kemi gave him the baby. But when Islamat saw Okiki with the child, she rushed to take the baby from him. 

"They dragged the baby between them, while Kemi stood looking at them. Okiki tried to leave with the baby, but Islamat didn’t allow him, because she feared that he was going to use the child for rituals. It was a passerby that called my attention to Okiki merciless beating of my granddaughter, I almost had high blood pressure, I rushed out and called my granddaughter. As I was leading her back into the house, she fell and fainted. The first hospital we took her to didn’t have doctors on call, but before we could get to the health center she died. It was confirmed by the doctors there,” the grandmother said.

Mrs. Agbola could not confirm speculation that the deceased was pregnant before her death. She said: “There had been rumours about her being pregnant, but she said that she was not, so I didn’t ask her who the father was."

Saturday Sun learnt that Arisekola was said to have been dating the victim since 2015 and the union produced the baby girl. However, he showed no move to marry her, apparently because he was still trying to find his feet. But he took responsibility for his daughter.

According to sources, the couple even broke up at a time, with Arisekola abandoning both mother and child, staying away for a long time.

Things reportedly changed when he saw Islamat may have been pregnant again probably for another man. He then stepped up visits and demands to have his daughter back.

Zimbabwean pastor arrested in church over video post

Zimbabwean activist pastor Evan Mawarire was on Sunday arrested during a church service after he posted a video bemoaning the country’s worsening economic troubles, his lawyer said.
The charismatic pastor who has been arrested several times for his dissenting views informed the congregation about his imminent arrest in a video streamed live on Facebook.
The video showed him being led away to an unmarked car.
His lawyer, Harrison Nkomo confirmed the arrest, saying “he has been charged with subverting a constitutional government”.
“He is detained at Harare central police station and we are preparing for his appearance in court,” said Nkomo.
In the video, Mawarire interrupted the service to tell the church about the presence of the police.
“I am told that the police are outside waiting for me,” he said.
On Saturday, Mawarire posted a video on social media showing long queues at fuel stations with petrol and diesel supplies scarce across Zimbabwe as the economy buckles under a foreign currency shortage.
Zimbabwe adopted the US dollar and other foreign currencies to stem galloping inflation which peaked at 231 million percent officially, and resorted to introducing bond notes -– a surrogate currency –- last year as banks ran short of foreign currency.
But the bond notes have not eased the country’s currency woes.
Mawarire is currently facing charges of misconduct and inciting violence after he addressed university students striking over fee hikes in February.
He is also due in court on Monday for a separate charge of trying to remove the government.
The charges stem from his involvement in organising a crippling strike in July last year that shut down major cities and paralysed public transport, prompting the government to ban public protests.
After his release he fled to South Africa and then to the United States.
Upon his return on February 1, police arrested him at the airport in Harare and charged him with attempting to sabotage the government.
The US government said last week said it was monitoring his situation.

Student to die by hanging for killing policeman

A court in Sudan on Sunday sentenced a university student to death after convicting him of killing a policeman during protests in the capital last year, a defence lawyer said.
Asim Omer, who was studying at Khartoum University, was arrested in December 2016 and charged with killing the policeman after hundreds of students clashed with security forces at the campus on the banks of the Blue Nile in April of that year.
Last month, the court found Omer guilty, and on Sunday sentenced him to be hanged.
“The judge sentenced Asim Omer to be hanged to death after finding him guilty of killing a policeman,” defence lawyer Mohamed Arabi told AFP, adding that he would appeal.
After sentencing, during which AFP was unable to gain access to the courtroom, police fired tear gas to disperse a protest by students gathered outside the court.
The protests relocated to areas in and around Khartoum University, with those demonstrations also dispersed by the same means.
The opposition Popular Congress Party, of which Omer is a member, rejected the court’s ruling.
“The sentencing of Asim Omer is illegal because the judge didn’t have full evidence to convict him,” the party said in a statement.
“We will continue our fight in the higher court and all alternatives are open to us to save his life.”
Students at Khartoum University demonstrated several times last year against an alleged plan to sell off buildings belonging to the institution.
The government denied the charge, and police often resorted to firing tear gas.
Sunday’s ruling “definitely affects the image of the country and the image of the judiciary”, said prominent human rights activist Mudawi Ibrahim Adam.
In late 2016, sporadic anti-government rallies were staged in Khartoum after the government raised fuel prices.
The demonstrations were swiftly broken up by security forces, and dozens of opposition leaders and activists like Ibrahim Adam were arrested.
Adam was released last month under a presidential pardon.
The bloodiest crackdown on protesters came in September 2013, when dozens of demonstrators were killed during anti-austerity rallies.
Thousands of people took to the streets of Khartoum and other regions calling for the downfall of President Omar al-Bashir’s regime, also after fuel subsidies were slashed.
Amnesty International said at the time that about 200 people were killed, hundreds wounded and more than 800 arrested. The government gave a toll of less than 100 dead.

D’Ambrosio saves Inter, AC Milan crash in Serie A

Danilo D’Ambrosio scored the only goal as Inter Milan left it late to squeeze past Genoa 1-0 in Serie A action Sunday and keep in touch with the leaders, as AC Milan fell 2-0 at Sampdoria.
D’Ambrosio headed in off a corner with two minutes to go at the San Siro to earn three points for Luciano Spalletti’s side, who saw their winning run ended on Tuesday with a 1-1 draw at Bologna.
Inter stay third, two points behind leaders Juventus and Napoli, who both claimed their sixth wins out of six on Saturday against Torino, 4-0, and SPAL, 3-2, respectively.
Ciro Immobile scored a double including one from the spot to bring his tally to eight for the season, as injury-hit Lazio stayed fourth with a comfortable 3-0 win at Verona.
Immobile converted a penalty after 24 minutes, scored from the edge of the box before the break and then teed up Adam Marusic for his first Serie A goal on 60 minutes.
City rivals Roma — who have a game in hand — are fifth, after easing past Udinese 3-1 on Saturday.
Duvan Zapata and Ricky Alvarez scored as Sampdoria condemned big-spending AC Milan to their second defeat of the campaign.
Zapata broke through after a terrible clearance by his cousin and fellow Colombia international Cristian Zapata after 72 minutes with substitute Alvarez getting the second just before the final whistle.
Chinese-owned Milan again showed their difficulty against teams in the top half of the table as they remained sixth after six games with Sampdoria, who have a game in hand, moving seventh just a point behind.
“We deserved this victory, we fought to the end and must build on this performance,” said Zapata.
“It’s important for us to keep a clean sheet too, now we need to rest and prepare for another important match.”
Milan had problems defensively with Cristian Zapata having a forgettable afternoon and Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli performing little better.
Sampdoria dominated from the outset with the visitors having a scare after two minutes when Ivan Strinic’s cross hit Franck Kessie on the arm and the referee awarded a penalty.
However, the decision was overturned by the video assistant referee.
Chievo won at 10-man Cagliari thanks to goals in the second half from Roberto Inglese and Mariusz Stepinski as Crotone earned their first win of the season 2-0 over tailenders Benevento.

IDPs protest in Maiduguri

File: Internally Displaced Persons

The Bama Initiative for Human Development, an NGO, on Sunday in Maiduguri staged a peaceful demonstration demanding the return of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their respective communities in Bama.
The group’s Chairman, Alhaji Muhammad Hassan, said that the IDPs would want to return and continue their normal activities in view of the prevailing peace in the state.
“We are in Maiduguri for more than three years without meaningful means of livelihoods. The condition of our people is pathetic.
“The elongation in the process of returning displaced persons to their homes is moving at a snail pace and exposed them to unbearable conditions.
“We could no longer send our children to school; many have died of hunger and starvation. Most of us live in host communities and no one is supporting us,” Hassan stated.
He said that most of them were traumatised, coupled with serious neglect and poor living condition, adding that they are ready to trek back to Bama.
The Police, however, stopped the demonstrators from embarking on the trek and urged them to drop the idea because of safety.
Mr Damian Chukwu, the Police Commissioner in the state, said that the group had not notified the command over their planned return to Bama.
He advised the IDPs to dialogue with the state government and other stakeholders over their demand so that adequate preparations would be made.
“The police have a duty to protect you and we will not allow you to gather people and expose them to danger in the name of home return.
“Also, there is massive reconstruction and rehabilitation works going on in the town, executed by the Federal and State Government under the Bama Initiative.
“We will not allow you to go because of your safety, you better go back and wait for the time when the government will permit your return to the town,” he said.
In his reaction, Gov. Kashim Shettima urged the IDPs to cooperate with the government to fast-track the completion of rehabilitation projects in the town.
Malam Isa Gusau, the Special Adviser to the governor, Communication and Media Strategy made this known in a statement issued in Maiduguri.
“It is to the government’s advantage if IDPs return home because their return will lessen economic burden of supporting them as displaced persons.
“The greatest wish of the governor is the safe and dignified return of all IDPs to their communities. Much as he wants the IDPs to return, he is also concerned about their safety.“We have to ensure that there is full return of civil security before IDPs can return.
“The governor encourages safe and dignified return only after putting the right things in place,” Gusau said.
According to him, the state government had re-built houses and re-settled displaced persons in parts of Kaga, Konduga and Gwoza Local Government Areas of the state.
Thousands of persons were forced to flee their homes when the Boko Haram insurgents sacked Bama town in 2014.
Hundreds of people were killed, maimed or abducted while the entire structures in the town were razed by the insurgents

NEWS‘Nnamdi Kanu’s life may be in danger; I hope he will show up soon’ – Falz’s dad, Femi Falana

‘Igbos don’t deserve what they are demanding from Buhari’ – Idahosa


Hon. Charles Idahosa was Special Adviser to former Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State. He is one man who has seen it all in the politics of the state and currently that of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Political Bulldozer, as he is fondly called, clocked 64 last Thursday. To mark the occasion, he spoke with Sunday Vanguard on some issues of national importance.
How do you feel at 64.
It has been great. I thank God for His mercies. For one to clock 64 in a third world country like this is a big achievement when you consider our life expectancy. God has been very nice to me. It has been a very long political journey and I am grateful to God to have been able to mark 64 and I am looking forward to 65 and God willing 70.
What do you make of the IPOB threat?
The truth of the matter is that Nigeria is like a theatre of the absurd. I said a few months ago that corruption will fight back. And what are you are seeing today? Is corruption not fighting back? All the agitations here and there, they are being stage managed to distract the APC federal government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, from getting to where it wants Nigeria to be. The campaign programme of the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari was to clear the mess left behind by the former administration.
And, of course, the money stolen during the PDP administration and now in the hands of individuals is so much that you do not expect government to just fold its arms. And the corruption that is fighting back is coming in different forms and all kinds of devices. All those campaigning for secession in the name of IPoB, where were they since? These are political gimmicks designed to derail the APC led government ahead of the 2019 presidential election. Unfortunately, we live in a country of very many unserious people.
This thing could have been tackled in a way that nobody would have known that such a thing happened. We made Nnamdi Kanu important. A 36-year-old who never saw the civil war. I witnessed the civil war and I know what war is. In war, a mother will deny her child; a father will run in a direction while the children run in another. So, when Kanu and his cohorts started talking because people were sponsoring them, it made me feel sad.
How do you see the calls for restructuring?
  What is restructuring? What is devolution of power and what is confederation? What led to the civil war? What is ‘on Aburi we stand?’ Is that not what we are still fighting today? When Nigeria was at the peak of the crisis in 1966 and Nigeria was going to disintegrate, they went to Aburi, Ghana. General Gowon presided and they did not allow any civilian to be there. Gowon, Ojukwu and a few other people attended the meeting.
I think the only civilian that was there was then Prince Akenzua who later became the Oba of Benin, the father of the present Oba as federal Permanent Secretary. Ojukwu said Igbo wanted confederation, a weak centre and powerful regions. And by the time the meeting ended, Gowon signed. That was the Aburi Accord which provided that Nigeria will now go back to confederation because Aguiyi Ironsi, at the inception of military rule had concentrated political power at the centre, and northerners, who were far behind in development, kicked against it (Aburi Accord).
All the positions that the Igbo are crying of being denied today, head of the army, Governor of the Central Bank, Senate President, were occupied by them. And after they toppled Aguiyi Ironsi, things changed. Let’s go back before then, there was regionalism. Each region was developing at its own pace. Back to your question, what is restructuring? Politics is a game of numbers; politics means the sharing of the dividends of democracy. The constitution has taken care of restructuring because every state has a minister in the federal cabinet. Each local government must have a commissioner at the state level; so, there is proper representation at all levels.
If you people need restructuring, because I heard people complain about how appointments are shared, how do you expect the APC to give equal Boards appointments to the South-East that voted 90 per cent for the PDP (at the last presidential election)?   Do you expect the President to compensate those who did not vote for him? Is that one done anywhere in a democracy?

'I am calling on President Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the educational sector' - Ben Bruce

Nigerian lawmaker, Ben Bruce fondly called the 'Common Sense Senator' says is calling on President Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the educational sector.
